Hubbard Garden (Ruxton, Maryland)
United States of America -- Maryland -- Baltimore
Scope and Contents:
Hubbard Garden related holdings consist of 2 folders, 60 35 mm. slides (1995) and 44 digital images (2018). Folders include numerous photocopies of articles about the garden.
General:
The two-acre property has a 1937 Colonial revival house and gardens that have been reworked many times since 1969 when the current owners moved in. The sloping property has been terraced, replacing a grassy hillside in back with dense plantings and winding stone walkways that lead eventually to a woodland garden. Along the front of the house there are three courtyards connected by a broad brick walkway that culminates at an antique cast iron bench painted turquoise blue; the doorway to the house is through another small private courtyard off to one side under a rough timber pergola. A curving 840-square-foot swimming pool with a dark gray reflective interior has a stone wall with fountains. The owners have collected thousands of trees, shrubs, perennials and bulbs that fill the terraces in front and back as well as screen their property. Conifers that have year round interest include Japanese umbrella pine, blue spruce, hinoki cypress, and Japanese cedar. There are modernist sculptures places around the upper terraces, along with a fish pond. Raised beds for growing vegetables now grow tulips and other flowers. Dwarf conifers and sedum are planted in hypertufa troughs. Other plant collections include more than 150 varieties of daylilies, hydrangeas, azaleas, rhododendron and ornamental grasses that were amassed by landscape architect Kurt Bluemel. The areas designed by Bluemel hug the hillside with curving terraces supported by dry stone walls that bring the gardens into closer association with the house. Perennials are planted in large drifts while evergreens are used as backdrops and screens. Plants that succumb are replaced with different varieties and deer fencing was installed in 2009.
Persons associated with the property include: Dr. and Mrs. Henrich (former owners, 1937-1969); T. Worth Jamison (1893-1964) (architect, 1937); Kurt Bluemel (1933-2014) (landscape designer, 1990); Ingrid Ernestl (gardener, 1994-2010); Ulrich Ruckriem (sculptor); Ian Aurbuch (sculptor); Matthew Harris (sculptor); Costas Velatsis (sculptor); Anthony Card (sculptor); Wade Saunders (sculptor); and Jon Iserwood (sculptor).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a work sheet and slide view plan and magazine article.
General:
The garden started in 1958 from an existing woodland property using material from Henry Hohman's Nursery. Small pieces of sculpture were purchased for the shade garden beginning in the 1960s. In 1970, a tennis court was added; and development of the lawns and borders began. This garden is the result of the marriage of two growers; one an artist, the other a horticulturist. "The collections of trees, shrubs, perennials, bulbs and sculpture are incorporated into a cohesive work of art."
Persons associated with the garden include: Bruce Baetjer (landscape architect, 1958); Wolfang Oehme (hardscape addition, 1990); Rose Wolford (pond design consultation, 1990); Gary Keim (landscape design consultation, 1995-present); Mary Pat Neff (bed layout consultation, 2000); and sculptors listed in folder.

Type:
Archival materials
Place:
United States of America -- Maryland -- Baltimore County -- Owings Mills
Shea Garden (Ownings Mills, Maryland)
Scope and Contents:
47 digital images (2016, 2018) and 1 file folder.
General:
The five and one-half acre property has a Dutch Colonial style house built in 1954 and had well-established copper beech, zelkova, redwood and Japanese maple when the current owners moved there in 1995. The first garden they established was a long perennial border filled with plants brought from another property, supplemented with annuals for continuous bloom. A multi-trunk Japanese maple outside the kitchen door is the focal point for a shade garden that fills a slope down to the driveway and holds the ground. To create a terrace for the front garden and divide it from a new looped driveway a low stacked dry stone wall was built. A vegetable garden with eight raised beds encouraged children to eat vegetables; now it is used mostly as a cutting garden with a recent addition of low bush blueberries outside the fence.

The owner is a collector of plants so each garden room has been filled with shrubs and perennials, and new garden rooms were designed for new collections. The driveway garden was started with ground cover plants but became filled with hostas and bulbs. The woodlands at the rear of the property act as backdrop to dogwoods and the newest garden room nearby has a circular entry of carex with a curving path into the woodlands. A dwarf conifer garden with a fish pond was planted near the vegetable garden and an allée of crabapple and thuja with a bench is a respite after working with vegetables or flowers. The owner shows daffodils that are planted in sectioned beds that have brick dividers between varieties. A circular herb garden outlined with bricks is divided into four sections by gravel paths with a rose growing on an obelisk in the center. At the front of the property another woodland garden has a path built from all the rocks dug up over the years.

Other features on this property include a flagstone patio, a small waterfall, many bird feeders and bird boxes, a sculpture of two otters by Theo Gillick, small statues, native plants and deer fencing around the entire garden and woods.

Persons associated with the garden include: Smart family (former owners, 1954-1987); Tom Owsley (former owner, 1987-1992); Huntington family (former owners, 1992-1995); Mike McWilliams, Maxalea Landscaping (garden design, 1995- ); Kathryn Shea (landscape designer, 2015-2017); Theo Gillick (sculptor, c. 2012).
